Why Go for Skilled When You Can Send in The Other Guys?
08.06.10 by reelz
In the new comedy The Other Guys, P.K. Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) and Christopher Danson (Dwayne Johnson) are the hard-charging, wise-cracking, ready-for-action top-cops of the NYPD. They're also the standard against which detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) — two underachievers more comfortable pushing pencils than cracking cases — are being compared ... and found to be severely wanting.
So when Gamble and Hoitz decide to step up their game and get back in the field, it's a decidedly mixed blessing. While there will always be a place in movies for the hyper-competent, isn't it more fun when the less-than-proficient step in?
